This book is not specifically about pitching your book to agents and editors. It’s broader than that. The skills in this book are applicable whether you are sitting in a pitch session or are about to do your very first school visit. It’s about delivering content in the most efficient, most interesting way possible.

I highly recommend this book. Yes, it’s perfect if you are about to pitch to an agent or editor at a conference, but it’s also a fantastic guide for handling all interpersonal communication. I’m in the process of incorporating some of the best practices into my own presentations and interactions. Beware though, you’ll want to read this with a notebook by your side. This is the kind of book where you want to take notes.
